Singer and songwriter Charlotte Emma Aitchison AKA Charli XCX began her career by first posting musical numbers on MySpace in 2008. She was then invited to perform in warehouse raves and parties, after which she signed her first recording contract with Asylum Records. By 2011, she had already released a series of singles and mixtapes. She came to the limelight with the launch of Icona Pop collaboration ‘I Love It’, followed by her debut studio album, ‘True Romance’. Her other famous singles include ‘Break the Rules’, ‘Boom Clap’ and ‘Doing It’. Charli has also served as a co-writer for other artists including Iggy Azalea, Blondie, Selena Gomez, and Shawn Mendes.
An already established popstar, Charli always had a dream of forming her own girl band. Finally, she came up with the concept of Nasty Cherry, which consists of four other musicians, Gabbriette Bechtel, Chloe Chaidez, Georgia Somary and Debbie Knox-Hewson. In the documentary, we follow each of these artists as they go about their day-to-day lives — arrive at their studio, rehearse during jam sessions, and support one another when they are down. According to Charli XCX, the crew is “unashamedly real and also badass.”
